Wallace: Senate Foreign Relations, as you sit here today, do you feel that you actually know what the government is and isn't doing in surveilling Americans? Corker: No.. I mean, i think -- i don't think there is many people -- there are many people that work harder than i do. I'm not on the Intelligence Committee and obviously, they are privy to information that I am not. But, absolutely not. And that's why I wrote a letter this week to the President, asked that the head of this organization

Alexander: This is not NSA breaking into any databases it would be illegal for us to do that. and so I don't know what the report is, but i can tell you factually we do not have access to Google servers, Yahoo servers, dot dot dot. We go through a court order. Wallace: General Keith Alexander, head of the NSA reacting to a new report that his agency has broken into Yahoo and Google communications links.
Chris Wallace
Journalist and Host of FOX News Sunday

Chris Wallace: It seemed like the term of art there was “server.” Because the allegation is, yes, we get court orders to get information from Yahoo and Google, but this is some sort of back door breaking into their system without a court order.

Wallace: Edward Snowden may have put together something that's been called a "doomsday cache" of top secret documents, much more damaging than anything he's released so far, and that they will be released if anything happens to him. do you think that that is a legitimate and real concern? Hayden: I've seen those reports, Chris. I have no reason to doubt them. Wallace: Do you believe it? Hayden: I have - again, I'm not in government, I don't know the secrets but it's the kind of thing that someone as clever as Snowden has shown himself to be, would probably do.
Michael Hayden
Former Director of the NSA and Director of the CIA
FOXNEWSW 12/01/2013
Wallace: Is there anything we can do about it? Hayden: Well, it's very, very hard. This is, Chris, I'll be very candid with you, this is catastrophic for the safety and the security of the American nation, what this very narcissistic young man has done. Wallace: and to that degree, is it a good insurance policy and should the lesson be, lay off Snowden because you don't want this doomsday cache to be revealed? Hayden: No, I wouldn't think that's right either. That's a bit like a negotiating with terrorist, I don't think we ought to do that either.
